I have to admit that I didn't notice until after I had grouped these nine Paris postcards together that they are from two different publishers: E.L.D and J.L.C. However, the die-cut edge and paper style is almost identical, save for the shading. The Ernest Louis Désiré le Deley (E.L.D.) cards are entitled Vieux Parchemins (Old Parchments). However, I think the cards look more like tanned leather with the variations in color. J.L.C. entitled their series "The Old France." Together you have a mini-history lesson of Paris buildings in the 1500 and 1600s. There is one duplication: both companies feature the same drawing (save different trees!) of Saint Sulpice church. The other 7 cards all feature a different building from Paris' historical past, including the infamous Bastille! Each card is typical antique postcard size: about 5.5 by 3.5 inches. Unused and in overall excellent condition.
